To provide food and clothing for people in need through the generosity of our community.


NACE is a community-supported food shelf and clothing closet, serving north Anoka County.

Company Overview

Agency Partners with Second Harvest Heartland and The Food Group. NACE is a community supported food shelf and clothing closet serving Bethel, Cedar, East Bethel, Ham Lake, Linwood Township, Oak Grove, St. Francis and Stacy and Wyoming addresses in Anoka County. Northern Anoka county is considered a food desert, which means, in short, that the number of people in need far outweighs the resources for food.

General Information

You are welcome to visit NACE once per month. We ask that you bring an I.D. and a piece of mail with the current address for each adult in the household to the NACE visit.

The Clothing Closet is open during food distribution hours. Clothing is accepted as needed, in season.

Please call 763-434-7685 to schedule food and clothing donation drop offs.
